Sam Shepard and Patti Smith, 92 Y, January 21, 2010

Sam Shepard and Patti Smith have been close friends since the early 1970s, when they co-wrote and co-starred in the play Cowboy Mouth. Upon the publication of their new books—Shepard’s Day Out of Days, a collection of stories; and Smith’s memoir Just Kidsthey read together at the Poetry Center for the first time.

This is going to be so rewarding. We have never been to a dual author reading or the 92nd Street Y before.

WordPress Wordcamp NYC 2009 – November 14, Baruch College

Yesterday my wife and I attended WordPress Wordcamp NY City. It was great being a virtual student at Baruch College in the Garmercy Park section of NYC.

Our son attended The School of Visual Arts from 2004-2008. He lived on East 23rd Street and for us it was like coming home again being at Baruch College up the block 😉

The event was very well done. My hat is off to Jane, you organized a great day for us. Your hard work truly paid off in what was accomplished. The sessions were excellent. Our favorite session was True/Slant what a cool MU blog are they.

More about WordPress Wordcamp NYC event.

Very eager to hear about WordPress 2.9 which Matt will be unveiling today, what a great community the WordPress crowd is 🙂

Peace,
